Here’s a sage piece of advice for you: think twice before you meme.
If only someone had given this advice to UK football club Manchester United, they would not be in the situation they are in now.
The club’s attempt at a “not a cellphone in sight” meme has backfired spectacularly, since no one appeared to check the photo in the meme for… cellphones.
Man Utd tweeted out a photo on Wednesday night showing footballer Jesse Lingard facing an eager crowd, with the caption: “not a cellphone in sight, just people living in the moment.”
But, if you look closely at the photo, you’ll see not one but several cellphones.
Gloating Twitter followers were quick to point out the club’s major meme blunder.
All in all, fans were able to spot three phones in the photo.
Just like, at least check the background of the photo before you tweet it out, guys.
